I thought this was an excellent video about secret societies, but without going down any crazy rabbit holes.
But I like the crazy rabbit holes! The crazier the better.I thought this was an excellent video about secret societies, but without going down any crazy rabbit holes.
You're no fun.Anything that is not in line with Jehovah's purpose is a crazy rabbit hole.
Thanks AB. I really like Matt's way of explaining things... he informs without getting into the weeds. I hope to see more of his interviews.Warren Buffet called derivatives financial weapons of mass destruction. I never felt the need get into the weeds about them but somewhere along the way I acquired an overview of how they work and I am appreciative of that because when I hear the topic being discuss I understand what is being said.
Similarly, I've seen other Matt Ehret interviews and he seems to give a quick overview of items that I want to know about but have no desire to spend lots of time on.
I recently took a Watchtower sanctioned Oasis tour and they talked about the same Pharaoh that moved towards monotheism that Matt mentioned in this video.
Carl, I am appreciative that you curated and shared that video with us/me. Thank you.
We went on that same Oasis tour in 2014. @A B. I thought it was very interesting indeed. They had a few themes / different tours at the Metropolitan Museum in NY. I believe the one we took, it’s theme was “Integrity.“I recently took a Watchtower sanctioned Oasis tour and they talked about the same Pharaoh that moved towards monotheism that Matt mentioned in this video.
You won't see the WT put out an article like this today.Here’s an article from the June 1, 1997 Wtch which ironically addresses the question: Why all the secrecy? and When Secrecy
Signals Danger. Interesting read….
No mention of Free MasonryHere’s a few quotes from the article…THIS IS VERY TELLING:
“Among the earliest of these secret societies were the mystery cults found in Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Later some of these groups wandered from their religious background and took on political, economic, or social overtones. For example, when guilds were formed in medieval Europe, their members resorted to secrecy primarily for economic self-protection.”
“Members gain the feeling of belonging and a sense of purpose. Secret societies of this kind usually are no threat to nonmembers. Outsiders are none the worse off for not knowing the secrets.”
When Secrecy Signals Danger
“The danger inherent in such groups is obvious. Those in the lower echelons may be completely unaware of the real objectives of the organization, not having as yet progressed to that level of revelation. It is easy to become involved in a group whose goals and methods of achieving them are only partially recognized and, indeed, perhaps not even fully shared. But the person who has been initiated into such a group may later find it difficult to free himself; he is, as it were, bound by chains of secrecy.”
